I have the occasional privilege of playing with CL, the original poster. Since his first post, he's had 2 kids, well, technically 1 and another due in a few days, and he's rarely walking these days despite having a Clicgear with all of the add on's.

43 and just started using a push cart this year. I should have done it years ago. After looking over many different options, I settled on the Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT and could not be happier. I retain all the benefits of walking without any of the bag fatigue. I have also noticed many younger players using them vs carrying. It's simply a no-brainer.

I don't think age matters....much better for body and more enjoyable to walk if course is set up for it.  Some places I go it is just too far from green to tee or huge hills in the mix.

Used my new caddytek this last weekend. Figured I'd try it out with the Costco sale price. I'm 33 and will probably be sticking with the push cart vs carrying. I don't think I'll be using the umbrella for shade like some people do.

I bought my first push cart 4 years ago when I was 29 and my only regret was not doing it sooner. It was a great investment. I've suffered from back pain for most of my life but the pains have been much less since getting one.

I used to feel the same way but after I decided to give up the cart to burn those extra 1800 calories (and 3 rounds of making my shoulders too tired to swing the club 100 times) I got the 3.5+ and I'm loving it.

I notice more and more young-ish people using them all the time. I play with a 25 year old with one. I feel like it's closer to how the game was meant to be played. It's one less thing to worry abiut ehen you get to the course, and your setup is always the same.

Did a little experiment yesterday. I've had my push cart since May 2016, and haven't carried since, but walk a lot with the push cart. I decided to carry yesterday, and am paying the price today with sore knees and feet. Experiment over...

Yeah, I do that once a year or so. Every time I either give up and borrow a push cart for the back nine, quit after nine holes or press on for the entire round and limp the next day like someone twice my age.

You'd think I'd remember and not make the same mistake again. But eventually I'll be leaving home to go to the course and think, "Why mess around with putting the trolley in the car. I can just carry today". It's quite amazing how stupid I am.

If I had any sense I'd just buy a cart bag with no straps to use on my push cart. Remove the temptation to sling it over my shoulder next time that brilliant idea occurs to me.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

I’m a Junior Golfer, and in every tournament I play, there are more than plenty kids out there using carts, including me...definitely no Eason not to use a push cart, especially in inclamate weather, it can hold your umbrella for you, and it keeps that weight off your back. They’re not just for women believe me

Screw carrying! Here in Australia 95% use push carts and there is no "stigma" attached with it at all.

How well does a staff bag fit on the clicgear 3.5?  Looking to start walking again after being at a club where the distance between green and the next tee is absurdly long.  I also love my staff bag.  Everything stays dry and I have all of the things i need.

picked one up this year at 28 - BagBoy Quad XL - I'm not in good shape, in bad shape actually, and already have a bad shoulder from an injury so I wasn't going to carry. Really like the exorcize, much more enjoyable than a treadmill!

This thread has been around so long that some of us are going to have to change our answers...

BTW, at least in New Zealand, this is a pointless survey. They don't do electric "buggies" here; everyone walks.

I used to carry a full bag for years. But now, I'm old, I have ex-furniture removalists knees, sore back etc etc -so I have used a push cart for about 5 years. Just got the latest Buggy Boy Swivel for Christmas from the wife, it's a beauty.

I have been using a push cart (62 years old), but I have to admit it is a bit of a bother. First there is the unloading, setting it up, etc. After the round I have to use a brush to get all the grass off the wheels, tires, and parts of the frame, break it down, load it into my vehicle, and after all that I still get sand, dirt, and grass in the vehicle. I am thinking of going with a minimalist bag and carrying. I did this my last two rounds of 2017 and enjoyed it a lot more...I scored well too.

I put one of those molded plastic "trays" in the trunk of my car, the kind that's specific to the car model. So when I toss my electric trolley back there the dirt and sand collects in the grooves and I can just vacuum it out. My previous car had carpet back there that was eventually ruined by the sand embedding into it.

P.S. I wonder if I'm the first golfer ever to take his trolley and golf bag and test fit them in the trunk of cars I'm getting ready to test drive. Probably not!
